Abstract
The current common heat source for Marine Corps food service equipment is the Babington Airtronic burner, fielded first in the TRHS in 1996, and later in the M-59, FSU and EFK. A modern, highly fuel-efficient, common heat source is needed that can augment or replace the current burner system. The heat source, if fossil-fueled, is required to operate on logistic fuel (JP-8). TIAX has developed a patent-pending multi-fuel burner (which has already successfully operated with JP-8, DF-2, gasoline and propane) that has high-efficiency, low emissions, low parasitic power consumption, and is reliable and simple to maintain. The successful completion of Phase I will establish the feasibility and design of a high-efficiency burner heat source and mating hardware to be retrofitted to a TRHS. The Phase I effort will provide a foundation for Phase II development of a manufacturable prototype heat source and mating hardware. The successful completion of Phase II will result in a modern, high-efficiency, low-emissions, common heat source for existing Marine Corps food service equipment.
